, though, but not always. every once in a while, big american political change comes not from washington, but from the states. and today is one of those days. in the 1973, the supreme court said states could no longer ban abortions. today, one state just about did anyway. just over two years ago, a doctor named george tiller was murdered by an anti-abortion extremist. he shot dr. tiller in the head at dr. tiller's church in wichita. killed him instantly. since then, the late doctor's clinic in central kansas has been closed. the first doctor who said she would start providing abortion services again in that part of the state, she has been hounded by anti-abortion protesters. they have protested outside her family practice in wichita. they have protested outside her home. she's been targeted by wanted poster style emails, wanted posters calling her a mass murderer. she also got a letter telling her one day there would be a bomb under her car, that the anti-abortion activists would do anything they could to stop her. so she has not been able to open a practice providing abortions in wichit
today, it's about politics, too. at issue, whether big spending cuts should be locked in before the government is allowed to borrow more money to pay it bills. president obama held his second news conference in a week tells you the biggest headline. there is no deal. so the politicians from the president on down are trying to prove they're the one most looking out for you. >> it would be very helpful for us to be able to say to the american people our fiscal house is in order. >> the president wassed a today month that it's impossible to get a deal unless and until the republicans agree to raise some taxes. in turn, republicans say that before he spends anymore time lecturing them, she stop giving press conferences and put his proposals down on paper. but in the hunt for specifics, it is crystal clear the president is not ready to take the lead. >> if they show me a serious plan, i'm ready to move. even if it requires some tough decisions on my part. >> a lot of questions tonight about where this is heading and how it will impact you. the president's initial deadline, tonight, w

of the big deal, speaker boehner has suggested to sunset upper income tax cuts that tax code would be rewritten but last night he told president obama and called it off. he released a written statement that read in part, white house will not pursue a bigger debt reduction agreement without tax hikes. best approach may be to focus on producing a smaller measure. they suggested the disappointing jobs report in june was a game changeser. >> it ought to insent visa us to do a big package without raising taxes but we're hoping the president is not thinking he was as six months ago and he was making the arguments that raising taxes in the middle of this recession or slowdown, whatever you want to call it was a bad idea. >> reporter: secretary geithner says $2.5 trillion out of spending alone would unfairly impact the elderly and middle-class and also be bad for the economy and slow down job growth. >> heather: we'll see what happens. thank you very much. >> gregg: the clock is ticking for a debt limit deal to be struck and maybe faster than many people think. white house aids say a deal

. the indication that we're getting now is that this is a big deal, that this is going to be very large, and that everything is going to be on the table as far as bringing the corporate tax rates down, closing tax loopholes, but also cuts in entitlement programs, medicare, medicaid, possibly talking about social security and changing the way it works in the long term. these are big items that obviously could not get done legislatively before the august 2nd deadline. if there was some agreement reached between the leaders to raise the debt ceiling and agree to the framework by which they are going to tackle these big ticket items, that would be a significant thing. and it seemed like both parties were so far apart it will be interesting to see through the weekend if there can be some negotiated deal on a big framework. martha: it's interesting, bret because we've heard a little bit of what has come out of the preliminary discussions that vice president biden was part of. it seemed as though in those discussions they would talk big dollar figures although they wouldn't talk about specific

be using these big amphibious ships in the future? >> i think it is a testimony to the big deck amphibians. right now we have 11. navy has 11 cbn aircraft carriers, so our nation at large has 22 large deck what i call capital ships. >> power projection ships? >> power projection ships. ships that can influence the action. so we have 11 -- excuse me, 22 now and each one of them have fixed wing airplanes on them and i think the key lesson for everybody is the value of having 11 -- excuse me 22 versus 11, should we go down the road somewhere and we end up losing our stonewall capabilities, then our nations instead of having 22 ships where you can fly fixed wings, you only have 11 and our capability will be half so i think that's a powerful lesson. >> that's something we'll discuss in the next segment. but i want to take you to the budget and to the capability review that is ongoing. there was a number of $400 billion to be cut over a dozen years and folks are sayings that overcome by events that there is a lot of debt negotiation talk and numbers as high as a trillion dollars to be cut from d
